We stayed at the campground over the 2020 Labor day week. It was a nice site. Bath houses were decent. Water was located through out the campgrounds. We stayed in the back loop which is more level. Note you do not need to pay the day use fee if you are camping. The camp host actually retrieved our money we put in the envelope when i mentioned it during check in. The trails in the area have been impacted by several storms in the last few years and many of them are blocked by fallen trees.
Fort Yargo is a bit of history for Georgia, restored cabin from 1792. Boating, hiking, camping and cabins with another area that is a private resort. Lots of room 1816 acres, 16 cabins, 6 yurts. Many tent and trailers spots. #34 has full hookups. There is a nice pavilion and a fairly new welcome center. It is easy to get to and there is playgrounds for the young ones.
This is a nice campground, but seems to be in need of some TLC, The layout tends to give some sites a very good view and lots of room while others are very close, all have picnic tables and fire rings. The sites tend to be on the small side also, but there are some suitable for larger rigs and plenty of overflow parking. Bathrooms, though older, were clean and well maintained. The dump station has only a single drain, so last minute checkout leads to long lines. Cell service was good as was over the air TV. We stayed in a 30' motorhome and would not have had room for another vehicle on site. Some sites have room for a tent, some don't. We found it to be kind of noisy from traffic over the dam and on the road alongside the campground.
This is a typical Corp of Engineers campground, well kept with a variety of pull through and back-in sites. Sites are 50/30/20 electric with water, picnic table and fire ring. Many sites have a tent pad, are very level packed gravel/sand and well situated with very few having very close neighbors. Shade is at a premium on some sites due to cutting of pine trees a couple of years ago but almost all are waterfront with an excellent view. Some sites have direct access to the water allowing boats right at the site and swimming. The swimming beach is very nice and well maintained as are the playgrounds. Three bath houses are convenient to all loops, well maintained and clean. Cell service is very good as is over the air TV with numerous channels available. The dump station is easy in/out. Sites 10 through 40 have awesome views of Lake Hartwell.
Although a nice campground several things turned me off about this campground. Mainly the lack of enforcement of dogs running loose, owners not cleaning up after their dogs and enforcement of number of people on a site. The roads into the campground loops are narrow in spots and not well marked at all. Backing our 30' motorhome into our site required asking the neighbor to move his truck off our site and maneuvering around other vehicles parked in the road. The site was fairly level and offered a picnic table and fire ring with quite a bit of grassy area. Unfortunately, the neighbor on that side decided it belonged to them and set up games in it, then near dark other people joined them and set up a third tent in that area. Sites are 30/20 electric and water, but there is a dump station. This has the potential to be a very nice campground, and I'll go back sometime. Perhaps we just had one bad experience so we'll try it again sometime.
We stayed in campsite 71 for three nights in late January. The weather was chilly but calm. We loved the water views and the quiet setting. During the weekdays we were almost alone in our portion of the park, so we enjoyed taking the dog down to the little beach area (as there was no fishing). The weekend resulted in quite a bit of traffic as all the waterfront lots were filled. Decent separation between stalls, but lost the woody feel instantly.
We selected a site fairly close to the bathhouse, but those facilities were closed the entire time we were there. I didn’t observe any signage about why these where closed. This created a longer walk to the showers than desired in the 30-degree nights.
We arrived after hours and tried to check in the next morning. The office staff was very strict about observing their lunch hour. They were walking out as we were walking up and didn’t offer to assist us. There was no answering machine either as we tried to call a couple times once the lunch hour was over. Once we did make contact they were super friendly and helpful.
This park is just renovated, the bathhouses are clean nice and big.. The sites are pretty big, shaded, no level but not too bad I'm always prepared,and we'll mainteined. It has has 2 dump stations. The park has a nice hiking trails and bikes trails, dog friendly.
